Investing in the USA

In 2011, President Obama announced the SelectUSA initiative to showcase the United States as the world’s premier business location and to provide easy access to federal programs and services related to business investment. SelectUSA is designed to complement the activities of our individual States—the primary drivers of economic development in the United States.
